of the region. >> the leader of hamas held his own press conference in cairo today, during which he said that while his side agrees to the cease-fire, his fighters have, quote, their hands on the trigger. in jerusalem, the israeli prime minister, benjamin net ya hyan hew, also spoke about the cease-fire agreement. look at this. "prime minister benjamin netanyahu this evening spoke with u.s. president barack obama and acceded to his recommendation to give the egyptian cease-fire proposal a chance." he acceded to what president obama wanted. in other words, this is the american's idea, not mine, but i'm going to go along with it, because they're advising me i ought. it's very specific language, highlighting how central the united states is and what's happening right now, but also, sort of distancing israel from the cease-fire. making it our american cease-fire and not theirs. the most important thing tonight for people who are living in range of the rockets and the air strikes is that, of course, the cease-fire appears to be holding, at least for tonight. in terms of how likely it is to ho

-on-one direct phone calls with the israeli prime minister and also not the head of hamas, not the palestinian authority, but the president of egypt, which for a generation was our ally in the region, even though it was a creepy and repressive dictatorship. now that country, that crucial nation in this critical part of the world has a whole new face and maybe a whole new character in terms of its international responsibilities. nobody knows if this effort by them to broker a ceasefire is going to work. but it seems almost as important for the region, for the world, for us, frankly, that if a cease fire is going to come from anywhere, it looks like it's going to come from there. joining us live from gaza is richard engel. richard, earlier today we were hearing reports from jerusalem that a cease fire might be possible by tonight. that did not happen. what did happen today? why did the prospects change? >> reporter: i think it goes back to what you were just talking about. the historic picture has changed here and the two sides basically didn't want the cease fire. they have a strong hand right

the top commander of hamas. since then, five straight days of air strikes and rocket barrages into israel. some rockets targeted tel aviv and jerusalem. whether both sides feel like they have accomplished whatever they felt like they needed to accomplish with this exchange of force. or alternatively, whether israel is going to roll these tanks that has massed on the border over that border for a big ground incursion into gaza. 75,000 military reservists have been mobilized. and they are making it it clear that they just might turn it into a ground war. so it is a little unsettling to see the president traveling in asia while this is happening in the middle east, but this is sort of the way the presidency works. this happens and it happens pretty much to every president. when the libya war was kicking off, president obama was in south america. in 2006 when the lebanon war was kicking off, president bush at the time was in germany. when you are the president, the presidency travels with you. when international crises happen, you weigh in no matter where you are. and president obama is weigh
